Glass Spring Concentration
March 6- April 29, 2022
Intentions and Inventions
Go deep into thoughtful design during eight weeks of intensive glass work. With a focus on the hot shop, this workshop will encourage a curious, problem-solving mindset as students develop an innovative vocabulary of techniques and create considered, refined objects. Using analog and digital design, we’ll make molds and tools from wood, plaster, graphite, metal, rubber, and wax. We’ll cover graphite/plaster turning molds, wooden blow molds, hot blow molds, and cold blow molds. Students will be encouraged to incorporate cold working, kiln forming, and flameworking into their processes. Both beginners and experienced glass artists will discover challenges and possibilities that will stretch their work in new directions. All levels.
